At Franklin Robotics, our first product is a weeding robot for home gardens: addressing the dirty, repetitive, unpleasant task of maintaining a healthy, weed-free garden.

It’s a solar powered, autonomous, self-sufficient robot that wanders through the garden, avoids plants and obstacles, and uses a small weed whacker to keep weeds from taking over. It lives in the garden and takes care of the weeding daily, freeing up gardeners to focus on the plants they want to grow, when they want to.
